Nearly 30 years after he died, the remains of famed surrealist Spanish artist Salvador Dali have been exhumed to see if he fathered a child with a woman in the 1950s.
Maria Pilar Abel, who was born in 1956, says her mom worked for Dali’s family during the time she was conceived, and believes her mom and Dali had an affair the year before she was born.

Dali’s body was exhumed Thursday after Abel won a 10 year court battle with the Gala Dalí Museums and Foundation. His signature long, waxed mustache was reportedly still intact.
As the BBC reports, the claim has surprised many, including Dali’s biographer Ian Gibson, who claims Dali used to boast that he was impotent.
DNA samples have reportedly been taken from Dali’s teeth, bones and nails. It may take weeks before the results of the tests are known.
Dalí died in 1989 at the age of 84. He was best known for his painting “The Persistence of Memory,” featuring melting clocks.
